I don't believe Wireshark has "true" support as the software is open source. However, there is an active & friendly community around Wireshark that are more than happy to help answer questions. From a comprehensive Wiki and FAQ section on the site to the Ask a Question forum and bug tracker section, there's plenty of support options to make sure your questions and issues are addressed.

I haven't had to contact their official support because there is a HUGE amount of documentation and community support available. I imagine that one would be hard pressed to find many issues where they might need to contact actual support.

I have never engaged Wireshark support directly. Whenever I would run into a question or needed to learn about a certain feature, I was able to find the information I was looking for on tech blogs and forum posts by other network engineers. The Wireshark community has been more than enough whenever I had issues.
